    COMPLETED - FOUND - EQ5/HEQ5 16" Pier Extension Tube

    Sorry only just seen this. No the EQ6 is quite different to the EQ5.

    Not sure if this will help but I have a powder coated 16" extension with an EQ5 top plate and an EQ6 bottom plate!

    Heads Up ! Zeiss on Ebay

    Regarding the original scope due to coating problems with the Amici prism I'm in the process of swapping it over to a standard prism. According to the "experts" this should provide better results as an Amici is always compromised by its design, even if its made by Zeiss.

    RDF fitment to my new bino's

    I fitted a longer dovetail and used some aluminium to make a pillar which carries the finder qr shoe.

    Heads Up ! Zeiss on Ebay

    Did a bit of research and it turned out to be a Telementor l with a helical focuser (my current scope is a Telementor ll) so to cut to the chase its winging its way to Preston shortly lol. The objective is held in place by 2 screws and does not move unlike the version ll so access for cleaning should be easy.

    Hmm not the best example, bit of a chancer methinks. Going to stick with mine.

    Skytee II V's AYO II

    Interesting, I had both and returned the Ayo as it was not as smooth at the Skytee. Mind you I did get rid of the Chinese glue and replaced with a better alternative. Was using anything from a TV60 up to a C9.25 on mine. Have you converted your Skytee to the 3 saddles yet, that IMO is its best feature and something an AYO can't do.
